Aussie Chicken

A good friend sent me this recipe to try. I love trying out new recipes, of course, and I gave it a shot only modifying a few things here and there. My husband LOVED it and begged for more, and my kids liked it a lot too. I served it with beets (our favorite vegetable) and mashed pototes, and the whole meal looked extra fancy because of the chicken. The honey mustard sauce had a great flavor and I actually used it as a "gravy" on my mashed potatoes. My kids thought I was weird, but I thought it was delicious.
Thanks Jolene for the yummy recipe!

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/2 inch thickness2 teaspoons seasoning salt
6 slices bacon, cut in half
1/2 cup prepared mustard
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Rub the chicken breasts with the seasoning salt, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until crisp. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine the mustard, honey, corn syrup, mayonnaise and dried onion flakes. Remove half of sauce, cover and refrigerate to serve later.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place the breasts in the skillet and saute for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until browned. Remove from skillet and place the breasts into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Apply the honey mustard sauce to each breast, then layer each breast with mushrooms and bacon. Sprinkle top with shredded cheese.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and chicken juices run clear. Garnish with parsley and serve with the reserved honey mustard sauce.
